DON’T JUST SHOOT THE MO­TOR­CY­CLES

Motorcycle Sport & Leisure - - Test Ride -

This might seem like a strange thing to say, but the thing that makes the TT unique is The Moun­tain Course.

It pro­vides a beau­ti­ful back­drop for all of our ac­tion pic­tures. If you just do a close up of the bike then the

pic­ture could have been taken at Sil­ver­stone or Don­ing­ton (per­ish the thought!). You want to show that it’s a road race, so keep the ‘fur­ni­ture’ – the trees and lamp­posts, walls and hedges – in your frame too. Some­times when I am shoot­ing I have the scene all worked out and then it’s sim­ply a case of wait­ing for the bike

to ap­pear.
